NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
624 am CDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


Update...updated aviation discussion 


Short term...(today through Saturday night) 
issued at 303 am CDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Active weather situation expected from late this afternoon into 
the evening. A potent short wave is forecast to move across the area. 


Initially today should be dry with mainly cirrus clouds from 
thunderstorms over the plains. Overall, models have slowed down 
the system by a couple hours from previous thinking. 


Chances of storms increase over the west this afternoon as higher 
dew points move in and air becomes more unstable. 850 winds and 
bulk shear increase this afternoon over the west while an upper 
trough sharpens and becomes slightly negatively tilted. Narrow 
band of 60 degree dew points are expected to reach into the area 
just ahead of the cold front. Storms should become more organized 
during the afternoon. Models suggest some convection out ahead of 
the cold front over semo and gradually then become more linear 
during the evening as the system moves east. Instability continues 
through the evening as cold front moves through. By 00z the front 
is just entering the western sections and should reach the Ohio 
River just prior to 06z. 


Lingering showers possible til morning over the eastern sections. 
A high pressure ridge sets up quickly Friday during the day and by 
Saturday we are back into a decent southerly flow ahead of the 
next system. At this point, keeping area dry through Saturday night. 


Long term...(sunday through wednesday) 
issued at 303 am CDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Well, in a nutshell, the extended period looks quite complicated. 
Much of the Sunday through Tuesday period looks unsettled, but there 
is currently low confidence on day to day specifics. 


The first issue that crosses my mind begins with the Sunday 
aftn/night mid lvl impulse that should be ejecting NE (in a 
negatively tilted fashion) from a vertically stacked system out 
over the Central Plains. Models are in decent agreement as to the 
timing of the h50 impulse. However, there is uncertainty as to 
whether we actually get into the warm sector at the surface, or 
whether the warm front remains draped across srn portions of the 
forecast area. The 00z GFS/Gem seem to want to lift the sfc front 
to our north, while the deterministic European model (ecmwf) keeps the front down 
closer to the Tennessee border through 12z Monday. The placement of the 
front will likely be key in determining the sfc based instability 
and low lvl shear across the region. However, no matter which 
solution pans out, there looks to be a decent chance of some type 
of severe risk as that short wave ejects NE late Sunday and Sunday 
night. 


As we get into next week, additional short waves will likely 
pinwheel around the closed low out over the plains. The 12z GFS has 
US well into the warm sector by Monday afternoon, with Li's -6 to -8 
as the next impulse rotates into the MS River Valley. The European model (ecmwf) 
wants to keep the warm front draped down across the Tennessee border, with 
most of the region still in the cool sector. Once again, even though 
storm Mode and specific timing will be in question, the chance of 
rain/thunderstorms looks relatively high early next week. Bust 
potential on sfc temps will also be high early next week, depending 
on where that warm front ends up. Will likely play a middle of the 
Road approach at this point, esp for Monday, as to minimize error. 
As we head into the Tuesday/Wed time frame, there seems to be a bit 
more confidence that h50 heights will be falling with the approach 
of the upper low, and temps will be falling to below normal levels. 
Overall, it looks to be quite unsettled until the blocking pattern 
can break down. Will need to monitor this extended period not only 
for the severe storm potential, but also the heavy rain potential 
given the stagnant pattern that is expected to unfold.

Aviation... 
issued at 622 am CDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Mainly high cirrus with some cumulus developing this morning. 
Winds will gust to around 22kts at both kcgi and kpah with gusts 
around 18kts at kevv and kowb. Thunderstorms should reach kcgi 
around 00z, kpah around 02z, and kevv/kowb around 03z. MVFR 
conditions with thunderstorms, then IFR conditions due to low cigs 
after storms move east. Isolated showers will continue through 
most of the night over most of the area.
